Galaxy City is one of two starting zones for new heroes. (Atlas Park is the other.)

Galaxy City is a densely populated region, with a business sector to the north, a warehouse district to the south, and a park with a small lake in the southeast. The Freedom Corps building is also in this zone. Back Alley Brawler, who trains novice heroes, can always be found in front of Freedom Corps.

Like Atlas Park, the Hellions street gang has moved into Galaxy City in force, and the Clockwork are also active in a slightly more covert fashion. Heroes of security level 1 through 6 work to keep the peace in Galaxy City.


Galaxy City is a small, sheltered district near the heart of Paragon City. It is a densely populated region located between Independence Port to the west and Perez Park to the east. Galaxy is south of the financial towers of Steel Canyon and north of the industrial warehouses of Kings Row.

Galaxy City is perhaps best known for its tributes to fallen heroes. Several breathtaking statues are found scattered throughout the district, reminding the residents of those who gave so much of themselves for the people of the city. The sculptures are all dedicated to heroes who made the area their home, and include Wayland, a self-proclaimed descendant of a Norse hero; Cassiopeia, the lovely psionicist; and M-1, born and raised Matthew Barnes in Equinox, who enlisted during World War II and joined the 1st Hero Brigade.

Galaxy City, like Atlas Park, is one of the entry points for heroes new to Paragon City. As such, it is a fairly safe zone that is heavily patrolled. ELITE, DATA, SERAPH, MAGI, and GIFT all have offices in Freedom Court. New heroes who register here will receive their first missions in Galaxy City from their respective hero liaisons.

Galaxy City was known for many years as Paragon Heights. It was renamed after the post-Rikti-restoration, in honor and remembrance of Galaxy Girl, a.k.a. Kelly Graham, one of the neighborhood's own. A favorite of Paragon Heights, a darling sweetheart to everyone who called the area home, and a kind and compassionate matron to her extended family, Kelly was a true daughter of the neighborhood. A proposal was put forward during the rebuilding to not only raise a tall monument to her, but to rename the area Galaxy City after one of their own. An impressive statue of Galaxy Girl was erected during the rebuilding, and she gracefully takes her place amidst the city’s skyline, holding her hands up to the clouds.
